Well, we are back home from the ACTHA Comp. Trail Ride. We left home at 5 a.m. it was 29 degrees! We didn't have room to park trailers bigger than 20 ft. so we had to take my old 12' stock trailer which is partially open on the sides. So we put a sheet and a blanket on and tied them in the nose with a hay bag tied at the first part of the opening. (We checked them several times and they were warm as toast) Then we started on our 2.6 hr. trip. Four hours later we finally arrived. We laughed the whole way. Then we rode. The trails were demanding but nothing Jane and Bigun couldn't handle. The ride took 3.5 hrs. I knew Holly and Bigun did great and Jane and I had a lot of fun. The other horses did very well too. Well, after we ate some delicious veg. soup and cake they gave out the awards. Holly and I had laughed about how dirty Jane and Bigun were and how we wouldn't even think about the best groomed horse award and don't you know Bigun won best groomed! He DID look very dapper with his forelock put up in sissy bands and his tail braided. hehe. Then they awarded the Open Div. There was only one rider in it. Then the Junior Div. There was only one young boy in it. Then the Pleasure Div. That is what we were in. There were 4 riders in it. First Place with a score of 114 went to.....Holly and Bigun!!! We were thrilled. Then with a score of 109 Second Place went to.. ME AND JANE!!!! I am so PROUD of my bi-oo-te-ful girl. I knew Jane had done her usual competent job but I thought the other horses had done very well too. Yep, We came, we rode, we kicked butt. Seriously, everyone was very friendly. Can't wait to do it again. We'll have pictures soon. Wore out now and headed for a shower and bed. lotsalov D&J
